Archive Notes:

Windmills was built just before the first world war with an entrance from Ladder Hill. In 1991 a new entrance was created off Windmill Lane and the property was renamed Windmill House at No. 1, Windmill Lane.  Two houses were built in its garden in 1992 and 1993. 1a Windmill Lane, now known as Windmills, and 1b Windmill Lane, known as Greystocks. 3 Windmill Lane was built in the 1950s.

There are two copyright photos of the house, taken in the period 1925-1940, from the Minn and Buckler collection at the Bodleian, now digitised and available at these links
